A Celebration of Life service will be held on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at Morrison Chapel Baptist Church at 10:00 a.m. with a Graveside service to follow at North Cleveland Cemetery.

Together, they raised two amazing sons. Roy was an excellent carpenter and enjoyed building homes. He loved to hunt, fish, camp, and do anything outdoors. He passed that love onto his children and grandchildren. Roy’s love for his Lord and family was so evident to those who knew him.
